The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is a Smithsonian affiliated, nationally accredited museum, and it is the only congressionally chartered museum in its field. This museum tells the story of the Atomic Age - from early development, the Manhattan Project and Cold War, to today's peaceful uses of nuclear technology. It is a place to learn, to think, to imagine and to draw your own conclusions. From exhibits on nuclear energy and medicine, to the nine-acre outdoor exhibit that houses historic aircraft such as the B-29 Superfortress, there is something for everyone. At the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, it is our mission to chronicle the past, describe the present and imagine the future of nuclear science.
